We have been so busy lately, it was only this morning when I realized I was alone for the first time in weeks.
Iâ€™m in New Mexico and I was in attendance at the Churchoftheholysunrise when the quiet took over. I say quiet, yet I was acutely aware of the coyotes barking close by. Still, it was the first time in a while I was still.
Where were we when I left off last?
Oh yes, I quit working at the O and Joe and Sandie came for a visit. There are several posts for that, but I didn’t write any of them.
We pretty well went full tilt boogie while they were here. I know Sandie is laughing as she reads this, probably thinking they were slowing down on vacation, but Ken and I have a very slow pace about our life and just planning meals, going out and fussing over stuff is a big day for us and we did that everyday! â˜º
We also went to the Sunshine Coast and I think I can say, we like it there a lot and that may be where we find our next home, when this one sells.
Iâ€™m NM at my dadâ€™s house right now. I actually came down to visit my friend Kim. But, Kim got in at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ for some tests yesterday, so I took the opportunity to see my brother and dad. Iâ€™ll go down to Albuquerque when Kim gets back Sunday or Monday.
Being at dadâ€™s house is weird in some ways. Iâ€™ve spent so much time here in the last two years I have a routine in place and fall easily into it. I also see some patterns that have been repeated over the years and years of being a member of the Hudson family. Some patterns Iâ€™d love to change, but as we know change is hard! Awareness is key and I am becoming very aware of some of the patterns I keep out of spite as well.
Early morning sun rise and eating green Chile everyday are good and enjoyable patterns, some of the relationship habits, need work. I admit all the change needs to come from me and for so much of them I am just unwilling and pissed off.
Everyday, I try to make a little progress, but again and again, I see how this apple doesnâ€™t fall far from a self centred and obsessive tree.
